Hex Spinner Dry Fly - 2 Pack
With a Hex Spinner Dry Fly - 2 Pack, you'll have the pattern to challenge the largest trout during a time of almost reckless feeding abandon! The Hexagenia limbata, also known by the more common name, giant mayfly, can grow over an inch long, and can be found in nearly every state, particularly those in the Great Lakes Region and throughout Canada. You can find them in lakes, ponds, and streams with sediment bottoms. Hatches occur after sunset throughout the year in warm weather areas and in the summer and fall in cooler climates. Favorable hatching conditions are warm and muggy nights; however, it can take one-to-three days before these giant mayflies totally dry their wings and return in swarms over the water to mate. After mating, they expire and fall into the waters below in massive quantities. This Hex Spinner pattern imitates the spent mayfly. Yes, you will have a lot of naturals to compete with, but that's what the trout are feasting upon. Bring a rod that can handle large fish when you plan to fish with this Hex Spinner Dry Fly - 2 Pack!
- Use for trout, especially big browns
- Mimics the Hexagenia limbata, or giant mayfly, after it has mated and fallen into the water
- Technique: locate "mucky" waters as these are the places the Hex fly deposits its eggs; position yourself in likely trout holding spots before sunset and wait for these large mayflies to swarm above the water and start to fall, often into the darkness; avoid slapping the water hard with these large flies so that you don't scare off the fish
